Great for a lunch time snack

We sat outside in the sunny courtyard, overlooking the pier. Very friendly staff, quick service and very reasonable in price - lots of choice on the menu

As this café is right by the Yarmouth car ferry terminal, you get a great view of the ferries coming and going! Although we only had a coffee this time, these were very good plus we had a view over the Solent. Very popular café and a good place to retreat to on a cold day...

We visited here on Saturday for a hot drink, but were tempted by the range of lovely cakes - including gluten free brownies. The cappuccino was good as was the pot of tea, and they were happy to provide more hot water. Delicious cakes too. The views are fabulous, right on the sea front. We recommend it highly!

Nice little cafe offering great views of the Yarmouth seafront. Picked this cafe as other pubs and restaurants in area had expensive prices for lunches and this cafe was reasonably priced. Staff was very friendly and hot chocolate were excellent. The good views and decor makes for a lovely atmosphere. The food was tasty and good value for money. Will... More

Lovely little tea rooms with chequered table clothes and little wooden tables and chairs - the whole deal. Plus the location, overlooking the harbour - coffee and cake delicious too. All this on a grey day - must be even better when the sun is shining!

I usually come here on my way leaving Yarmouth. Great view of the pier while enjoying a coffee. Breakfast is pretty good as well!

This nice-looking cafe in the lovely little town of Yarmouth promised much. Lovely seaside setting, cosy interior and very busy. However, the service was not very friendly and the hot food was not of good quality - burned pizza, with brick hard base and heaps of melted cheddar on top (never pit melted cheddar on pizza!); average soup; average macaroni...

this cafe should be closed ASAP staff rude espically women behind the till, food that makes you want to spit it out as soon as you put it into your mouth. Its a shame that the standards have dropped because I have been there before and the service was 10 times better
